The Regional Municipality of York is working with Unionville Home Society (UHS) and Minto Communities on a master plan to redevelop the UHS campus to include:

  • An affordable rental building for seniors, owned and operated by Housing York Inc. (HYI), York Region’s non-profit housing corporation
  • A new Minto Communities townhome development

The proposed 11-storey HYI building will include 260 apartments for seniors, a public community centre and a seniors hub offering seniors-focused services to the community.

Construction of the HYI building is anticipated to start in 2018, with completion anticipated in 2021.

Building features

  • On-site underground, weather-protected parking 
  • Short-term surface visitor parking
  • Community centre and seniors hub with programming and services
  • Indoor and outdoor amenity and common spaces for residents
  • Outdoor garden and pedestrian walkway
  • Green/energy efficient building systems


As of August 2017, this project is in the development and planning phase. An Official Plan amendment, re-zoning and site plan application has been submitted to the City of Markham as part of the standard municipal approval process.
